This summer, the most powerful machine ever conceived­ the large hadron collider (LHC) is scheduled to begin operations. CERN’s LHC, dubbed “the world’s largest experiment,” is an international collaborative scientific project (near Geneva, Switzerland), which seeks to simulate the big bang. It is hoped that the collider will produce the elusive Higgs boson (“God Particle”), which could explain how other elementary particles acquire mass. Uwe Bratzler PhD, a graduate of the University of Washington and a physicist on the project, unlocks the science behind this momentous experiment. Presented as part of The Seattle Science Lecture Series.

Tickets are $5 at the door only. Downstairs at Town Hall, enter on Seneca Street.
